When does Red Flag 20-2 run? I heard it might be 3 weeks? Getting antsy and thinking about a last minute flight

I believe it began today and runs for two weeks through 20 Mar...unless something has changed.

Had the chance to catch some of the Spanish Typhoons stopping at Dover AFB for a layover, before crossing the pond home.

Awwww jealous! The German Typhoons stopped near Detroit but I had no idea so didn't catch them.

Confirmed dates for Red Flag 20-3 are June 17th thru July 1st. Fingers crossed that the COVID-19 pandemic won't be an issue by then.

That would have been a cool catch at Selfridge. They stopped at several different locations after departing Nellis. It appears at least one German fighter has just departed Selfridge. Guess they're still hanging around!

I thought it was very difficult to spot at Selfridge...

Are there locations that can be used without being chased away?

Thanks

I don't know of any that are any good. I have gotten away with hanging out behind businesses during off-work times but haven't even tried in years. If anyone has one I'd LOVE to know.
